Summer may be viewed as the best time to enjoy ice-cold cocktails at the beach, but the chilled autumn weather actually has a lot to offer when it comes to delicious cocktail recipes. From pecans to cinnamon spice, fall flavors pair perfectly with many beers and liquors. Try these fall themed drinks to warm your belly this season!
Apples – Everyone knows the best time to go apple picking is fall, and you may as well add those apples to every dish and beverage as possible! This autumn, try making an Apple Crisp drink. It’s highly versatile and can be made with a variety of measurements depending on your personal tastes. All you need is some apple juice, vodka, spiced whiskey and maple syrup. How about them apples?
Maple syrup – Pancakes aren’t the only thing maple syrup is good for. If you’re a fan of rich flavors, then a Log Cabin cocktail may be right up your alley. Just combine maple syrup with apple brandy, sparkling apple cider, and a hint of lemon juice.
Halloween candy – Now, you might be thinking we’re crazy to suggest adding candy to your drink but hear us out! Candies such as gummy worms and candy corn can be added to give your cocktails a sweet taste. Those with a sweet tooth and a love for honey will enjoy this Candy Corn Martini recipe.
3 oz vanilla vodka
1oz Grand Marnier
1 cup candy corn
Pumpkin – You knew this was coming! Pumpkin is the flagship flavor of autumn, and you’ll find pumpkin in almost every fall-themed dish and beverage. It may sound like an odd mix, but Pumpkin Mojitos are a must try for the adventurous drinker.
Juice of half a lime
10 mint leaves
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
